We are very proud to present the new Zynthian store. You can enter by clicking on this link:
It’s been a long way from the first Zynthian prototype being announced in this blog, more than 2 years ago. It’s been an interesting trip and along the way, i have learned a lot of things and a small but dynamic community has grown around this crazy project that Zynthian is.
We are proud of introduce the new Zynthian Kit v2.
As it’s normal in almost any development, we had problems and delays, but finally all the parts are ready and we can start to ship it.
Greetings from the sunny BCN, where today the rain fall over and tomorrow the air will smell clean and healthy 🙂
It’s been a hard month preparing the new SD image, but finally it’s here. Its name is Gorgona!
If you already have a Zynthian Box, i’m pretty sure you would like to try Gorgona right now. You can choose between two different versions, compiled for RBPi3 and RBPi2:
Greetings from MasFort, in Reus, where time passes slowly and tomatoes grow fast! 😉 I hope you are enjoying the summer and recharging your batteries for the coming season.
A little over a year ago I mounted the first Zynthian prototype and since then many things have happened. The software and hardware have evolved a lot and people around the world are building Zynthian Boxes. The project has grown and a small community of users and supporters is borning. It is time to meditate a little bit and consider new goals.
Among these goals is sending a newsletter, more or less regularly, to keep you informed of progress and news about the project. Let’s go there!
Zynthian Project will take part in SONAR+D, the event organized during the SONAR Music Festival, in Barcelona, from 16 to 18 June.
We will have a nice stand where we will showcase our prototypes, make demos and explain the project to the assistant public. It will be a very good ocassion to make useful contacts and attract interested people to the project.
Sónar+D will showcase a selection of projects from companies, creative labs and scientific research centres from Aragon, Catalonia and Madrid at La N@ve (f.k.a. Fábrica Boetticher) on Friday 13 May from 5 to 11 pm.
Zynthian Project has been invited to take part in the event as an expositor. We will have a 16m2 stand, where we will show our prototypes and some funny experiments that we are preparing for the event.

Developing software for Zynthian is slighty more complex than developing software for a desktop platform. You need a Zynthian Box (ZBox) over your desk running all the time and connected to the network. You must login by ssh everytime you reboot the ZBox. Every time you want to test your changes, you have to copy the modified files into the ZBox, compile if needed, and run the program from the shell.
This cycle makes development slower than normal, and although you use scripts and tools to agilize the process, finally you realize that there is a better way 😉
As I said in the previous post, we have been very busy the past few weeks working in the new website and a short video presentation for Zynthian, among others.
Finally, both tasks are finished … or almost finished. There are still things to improve and details to fix, of course, but we will do it on the way. We don’t want to wait more time. Here is the video:
Also, we have a new GitHub site, with a better structure and reorganized repositories:
In the next days, i will introduce you the new Zynthian Emulator …
Last weekend we have been filming a video presentation for Zynthian. A short video of about 1-2 minutes to introduce Zynthian. It’s intended to be in the top of project’s website, that will be ready in the next weeks.
Filming that kind of video is not an easy task. You need expert people, good material and a clean environment. Dust is your enemy. Everybody have to be immobile while filming because vibrations of steps are easily transmitted to the camera, especially if you try to do some kind of traveling, etc.
